    So in the worst christmas present ever thread so many people go back every year to continue to get the junk end of the stick and get mistreated and not cared for my their inlaws and other family..

    I am tired of it and dont want to do it any more... just wondering what everyone else did to get out of going over to their house for christmas.

    Actually what happened to me this year is the opposite. I am having a non - verbal disagreement with my parents over my oldest son and the fact the my father is an abusive @#@#! So I am now going to do all my holidays at my in laws. I'm hoping that things will go okay. My DH's side of the family is alot closer then mine has ever been. Everyone gets together at even the slightest excuse. Also my MIL and I are closer becasue she figured out that my BIL is a piece of @#*@#. So I hope this year will be better. Although I ma a little scared because my DH told me yesterday that he knows what his mom got me. I hope its something I'll like [​IMG]
    It's a 50/50 chance

    Quote:The year after my father died my mother was feeling adrift and everyone was scrambling to figure out what to do to make a new tradition. She wasn't prepared for all of that.

    At Thanksgiving we ended up talking about it and we decided to run away from home. We went to Bermuda and had a good time and spent the next month showing off our pictures.

    The trip wasn't really great, we were both still sad, but it was away and we gave the family a chance to think through the new traditions.
